Islamism and Fundamentalism

Authored by Herdi Sahrasad, Al Chaidar

The book about Islamism and Fundamentalism reveals the social currents among Muslims, religion and pluralism in the era of the Medina State, Islamic radicalism and fundamentalist thoughts that characterize some landscapes in Indonesia, Southeast Asia, even the world at the beginning of this century.
Of course, people will not be able to appreciate the contribution of this book without understanding its social context, space and time in which the various fundamental issues are explored in this book, including how the radical Islamists bring their ideas to the surface and public spaces.
Written clearly and brightly, this book provides important information about the battle of ideas between fundamental Islam versus liberal Islam, Islamic radicalism in Southeast Asia and the lessons and wisdom from the Medina State in the context of the Indonesian Muslim's life in the early 21st century.
